SILVER SPRING, MD – The 17th annual Securing New Ground™ Conference, the Security Industry Association's (SIA) Executive Conference, is a unique forum where leading investors and executives from the security industry come together for a one-of-a-kind networking and educational experience.

The conference, which is being held Nov. 1-2 at the Conrad Hotel in New York, focuses on the business of security and on identifying business trends and opportunities for the coming year.

Through insightful presentations and discussions, productive sessions and networking opportunities, security industry executives and financiers interact with their peers. There is no other event that brings C-level security executives and end users of technology together in such a dynamic environment.

John Romanowich, President and CEO of SightLogix Inc., said, "Securing New Ground™ has the highest quality networking and is the most forward-looking event to understand where the industry is headed."

Highlights of 2012 conference include:

  • Wall Street Insight: The Investment Climate — One of the hallmarks of the conference, this session dives deep into the state of the industry investment business -- and the factors that drive financing, valuations and investment trends. An expert panel of financial lenders and investors from Raymond James, Imperial Capital and CapitalSource give attendees an advance look at the opportunities in high-growth markets.
